What is “Let’s Talk”?

"Let's Talk" is a service that provides easy access to informal, confidential consultations with CPS counselors. Drop-in hours are held at different sites on campus. There is no appointment or fee necessary. All sites are open to all students.

Do students schedule appointments for “Let’s Talk”?
No. Students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis. There may be a wait if the counselor is currently meeting with a student, but every effort will be made to meet with all students who wish to talk that day.

How is “Let’s Talk” different than seeing a counselor at CPS?

CPS is located in the Wellness Center and provides formal, on-going counseling, which usually consists of 45-50 minute weekly or bi-weekly appointments. “Let's Talk" is not formal counseling; it is a drop-in service at various sites on campus where students can have a consultation with a counselor from time to time. The counselor will talk through issues with students, provide support and help determine the best way to assist them.

Who might benefit from “Let’s Talk”?
"Let's Talk" is often the best fit for those students who:
1. are not sure about counseling and wonder what it's like to talk with a counselor;
2. are not interested in on-going counseling but would like to get a counselor’s perspective;
3. have a specific problem and would like someone with whom to talk it through

Is Let’s Talk confidential?

Conversations with Let's Talk counselors are confidential, with a few very rare exceptions. Counselors may need to share information in an emergency when there is an immediate threat of harm to self or others. Counselors are required by law to report when a minor, elderly person, or someone otherwise incapacitated and unable to act on his/her own behalf is being abused. Let's Talk counselors keep brief written notes of their contacts with students, and in the event that there is an emergency or a student is referred to CPS, other CPS staff may see these notes. These notes are kept within CPS’s mental health records and are not part of the student’s official academic record.

Although “Let’s Talk” counselors are CPS professionals, it is not a substitute for psychotherapy or formal counseling and does not constitute mental health treatment. “Let’s Talk” counselors provide consultations to help students with specific problems and to introduce them to what it’s like to speak with a counselor. “Let’s Talk” counselors can help students determine whether formal counseling at CPS would be useful and appropriate.
